Waiting for my man…
It’s funny how certain pieces you buy can change and define your style. I’m not sure if this is true for everyone, but I’ve tended to buy some things because I think they look awesome, even if they don’t necessarily look awesome on me. Also, sometimes I buy things just because they’re different from what I currently own, and hope that it’ll work out in the end. And then, sometimes, months or even years later, they suddenly do work out, better than I could have imagined. My outfit today, from the bottom up, explains this:
2) Except for a black pair of Levi’s that I had in junior high, I’ve religiously stuck to jeans of the blue variety. A couple years ago, however, when the skinny jean fad reached Canada, I went to try some skinnies on to replace a dead pair of trusty boot cut/slightly flared jeans. I ended up buying a pair of Buffalo straight leg black (!) jeans, which has remained my tried and true friend ever since. These are going straight to Denim Therapy as soon as they need some patching up, as I intend to remain best friends with them for at least a couple more years.
3) It’s quite obvious now that I’m a very avid supporter of Attila Design. But I was a bit unsure if I would wear my first purchase from Tiina, which was the Sybil Dress. It did, in fact, hang unworn in my closet for the first few months of its life in Canada. Now, it’s my favorite thing to layer with to make a springy fall or winter outfit.
